    My question is what does anyone think about purchase of a new Cat 247B VS. Used. My dealer just called me and has a 2007 247B, Cab, Heat, AC, Quick coupler, Bucket, Deluxe Controls, Basically fully loaded. $38500.00 going to be 650 a month. Or I find used 247B's with all the same options for $27000-$30000 and the same monthly payment. This machine will Be 80% Snow and the rest is used in the summer running mowers tillers, moving hay, bark jobs, and brush and wild-land fire fuel reduction. Does that price sound good to you all?

    you never know howthat track on the machine was taken care of. parts add up quick and take some time to change out....but saving money isnt bad. i paid 55000.00 for my 267B with bucket, forks, harley rake, hydraulic disconnect, heat, cab door with wiper. so sounds like you gota good new price also
